2013 Island Ink Kneeboard Pro

Would be great to get some West Aussies over to Phillip Island for this.
It’s on again !!    For the 29th successive year, Kneelo’s will be descending on “The Island” for their annual pilgrimage.  March 16th & 17th sees the running of the 2013 Island Ink Kneeboard Pro, to be held at the best breaks around Phillip Island.
 The event is run by Surfing Victoria, in conjunction with Kneeboard Surfing Victoria, and the organisers would like to thank Major sponsor “Island Ink Tattooz and Piercing” for their support, along with Rhyll Trout and Bush Tucker Farm, The Isle of Wight Hotel, Cowes Branch of Bendigo Bank, Magiclands Rubbish Removal,  Island Surfboards, Phillip Island Nature Park, Strapper Surf, Flashpoint Surfing, Parkes Australia, and Neil Luke Kneeboards.
The list of previous winners read like a who’s who of Kneeboard Surfing, including Farrer, Colman, Bryant, Smith, Parkes, Gallagher, Mchugh,  Simpson, & Munoz, 
The list gets better when you add in the Novakov’s, The Islands own, Dean Bould, and Jethro Cooney , along with Tim Kadwell.  Mike Disciascio and a host of others.
Saturday the 16th should be a huge event as Woolamai is being declared a “National Surfing Reserve” that day , and their will be a very large contingent of dignitaries’ to attend the official ceremony to be held at Woolamai.  The Phillip Island Boardriders will also celebrate their 50th anniversary the same weekend, and as part of the festivities, They will be having a “Massive” function at the Boardriders club on the Saturday night.
So please get your entry in early.  Don’t miss out on this weekend.  Only 64 spots !!!
See you on the island.

some pics from a trip to
Vicco last are from Wilsons Prom and Phillip Isl.
missed a good day of waves because we were hiking around the prom but the
next day was small but fun as the tide dropped after these first pics were
taken, really good quality banks at some spots near Phillip Isl. after a big storm earlier in the week
